Another successful online class

So, needing more inspiration to hopefully kickstart my business, I recently finished another online jewelry class.  This class was from Deryn Mentock (link here), who has had online jewelry classes, as well as in-person classes, for years.  This class involved making prong settings.  Unlike traditional prong settings, where there is a backplate to assist in holding the stone in place, this technique involves making settings whereby the stone appears to float within the setting. I will admit - this technique takes a bit of patience and practice - but oh so worth it!
